Dear family of Liza, I am sorry for your loss. It is sad to see a life cut short at a young age. I wish to share with you comfort from the scriptures. The Bible holds out a wonderful hope for our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. Please read John 5:28,29 in your Bible. Another wonderful future promise is found at Revelation 21:3,4 where it states that , pain and death will be no more. The former things will have passed away. As you read these texts in your own Bible, may they be of comfort to you. Sincerely Dianne Mullins

As you continue to find you way on this earth without your mother, wife, daughter and sister, your family is stronger than any other I have ever met. Liza was a true inspiration and it not about what you take when you leave this world behind.....it's what you leave behind when you go. She left three strong men who have an angel in heaven watching over them. RIP my dear friend.
